    when you say not connected you mean not connected to the t.v. but you have to have it plugged in with power right?

    would this work for an avov tv online 2 box?

  • Johnny Burroughs June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

    Hi Daniel…All seems to go well until I start the burning process. The device connects, then after 2% it disconnects again. So I am unable to flash the device. Definitely USB2 + male to Male USB + burning tool and correct firmware, oh and Windows 10. Only real difference is that my device has its own on and off button. Do you perhaps have any advice for a rookie flasher 🙂 Thank you for the video.

  • Marek S June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

  • Old Pelon June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

    Yes I saw your youtube video on this subject I had a question, in your video and states to use a double male USB, my question is on my box I have a USB port I also have a OTG port on the android box, can I use it instead of going out and buying a double male usb cable to transfer the data

  • Pablo Minisini June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

    I couldn't get communication with my TV BOX. I've installed the WorldCup drivers and I have my device plugged to my laptop, but cant start the whole process cause my laptop doesn't recognize my device. Maybe USB debugging mode not enabled in my device?

  • Digital Warfare Cyber News June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

  • blackzed June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

    What version of windows are you using 78910

  • CALSASH June 13, 2018 at 11:55 am

    Daniel, Thanks for your efforts but I am still struggling.
    I have placed the image file in the license folder and already within that folder was the "mac ether" file. I loaded firmware image file into burner, and burner has successfully checked it. However, on your video, when system is downloading, your screen shows under key the word "mac" in black and under the word "available" the number 88. Mine says "mac" and "0" both in red. This is before I connect the device using the reset button. When I do connect my download fails and I have a Get Key Failed message in red. Any ideas please?
